2013-25 - Minor amendment to Plant Exports Certificates: Export Clearance Declaration, Ship's Holds Inspection Certificate and Transfer Certificate

​Purpose

The purpose of this Industry Advice Notice is to inform exporters and their agents that minor amendments have been made to the Export Clearance Declaration, Ship’s Holds Inspection Certificate, and Transfer Certificate and Assessment Notice for Fresh Fruit and Vegetables templates.

Information

The amendments have been made to align these certificates with current phytosanitary requirements and departmental name.

Amendments to these forms are as follows:

  • Export Clearance Declaration (template code EX222) – update of the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) badging to remove reference to Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS).
  • Ship’s Holds Inspection Certificate (template code EX175) – italicisation of the ‘Export Control Act’ and inclusion of the year of that Act, i.e. 1982.
  • Transfer Certificate and Assessment Notice for Fresh Fruit and Vegetables (template code EX186) – update of the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) badging to remove reference to Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS).

The version date on each of those forms has also been amended and state May13.

Previous versions of these certificates are no longer valid and exporters and agents, who may have saved these templates to their computers, are to delete all previous versions and replace with the latest versions, which are available on the Plant​ Exports web page.

If you have any further enquiries, please contact your regional DAFF Plant Exports office.
